Curvy Widow
Midtown W
Disappointing

See it if Your with a group of middle age women and are out on the town and want a few laughs. A musical about finding love after becoming a widow.

Don't see it if A small off Broadway show geared to women looking for love when you reach 60 and are all alone. That maybe to much to sit through.

Fulfillment Center
Midtown W
Thought-provoking

See it if People struggling to survive in middle America make this a real drama for our age. It has,a modern day Grapes of Wrath feeling.

Don't see it if Not a feel good play and if your down yourself this will not help matters.

Dead End
West Village
Dated

See it if A well know play rarely performed with a large cast. Done right it is still a classic. Large cast brings it to life.
